My Experience With Fun Factory Manta
I am a person with chronic illness and was hit recently with blood clots that I thought were going to take my sex life down. Fun Factory’s Manta gave my partner and I a way to safely re-engage in sex. This toy was so fun for us to play around with and it allowed us to reengage with each other. Wet chills went up my spine each time I found a new way to make the Manta work for them. Plus, there was no fumbling in accidentally hitting buttons as so often happening with vibrators. We were even so eager to try the Manta we couldn’t wait the required 6 hour charge time and it died during our first use.
Design is the only category where the Manta lost points for me. Sex toys are really hitting their stride and coming in more colors to add to their appeal. The dull pea-soup color of Fun Factory's Manta felt more like it was screaming, 'hey this is designed for utility rather than fun!' If militant LARPING is your thing then this color might be for you. Otherwise, I would try my best to ignore how it looks. It gained back points for its ergonomic design. As a person with arthritis, I look for shapes that will be comfortable for my hands. The curve in The Manta was so comfortable for me and my partner as we switched off using it. I also found the vibration to not be too harsh for my fingers but still powerful enough to do the job.
Ease of Use
Loved! Loved! Loved! The little 'fun' button for turning the Manta on/off and travel locking. It was easy to figure out how to play with the Manta's 6 speeds and 6 patterns (something that I have found a little tricky in other strokers and vibrators). There was no fumbling around to figure out how it worked so my partner and I could get right to the 'fun' part.
The Fun Factory Manta is wonderfully made. The medical-grade, hypoallergenic silicone is buttery-soft. After reading about Fun Factory as a company, I now know the toys are ethically and eco-sourced. The Manta is waterproof and sooo quiet! I would, however, like to see a longer battery life considering how long it has to charge.
The Fun Factory Manta is a multi-use stroker and vibrator. A toy that can be used solo, make a penis or dildo vibrate, or a partner assist is well worth the money. In my opinion, it could even replace other toys and be used as an assistive device, too.
The Fun Factory Manta can be used for stroking or to target specific areas with vibration. Six speeds and six vibrations mean there is just enough variety to keep things interesting. The ridges, winged shape, and flexible material mean the Manta will slip into place quite nicely. The Manta is not, however, for people who enjoy a tight feel — though this was remedied with the assistance of a few more hands!
I am very careful about the storage of my toys so I love when they come in a package I can reuse. I was a little disappointed to find the Manta came in a cardboard box that would not be long for this world. The charger is unique to the Manta and means if (when) I lose it I'm going to have to buy a replacement from Fun Factory. There were some fun additions in the box, such as suggestions for games to play to set the mood. Little details like that are what keep me coming back to a company.
Materials and care
The Fun Factory Manta is made from hypoallergenic medical-grade silicone, and the handle is made from hard ABS plastic. That means you should use water-based lube with this toy. Hair did stick to it very easily but it also cleaned easier than most toys I own. I usually find ridged toys to be so much of a pain to clean that I steer clear of them. The Manta was the first time I didn't struggle to feel like I had gotten it as clean as I was comfortable with my unscented soap and water.
I have never owned a vibrator specially designed with a penis in mind. I expect many months of trying out how exactly the Manta works best for us. It’s even waterproof and has a travel lock. The possibilities are wet, mobile, and endless.

Fun Factory's ethics and gender inclusion have really impressed me. I'm looking forward to being a customer with this company for a long time. The Manta is my first vibrating penis toy. I'm really looking forward to all the ways this is going to help grow my relationship with my partner. It has become a fun addition to our toy chest and I expect we will be pulling it out often. You never forget your first.
